Were this true, then you would be merging souls every time you gave or received blood via transfusion. It's not uncommon for wounds to be so serious, and require so much time to operate upon, as to require the patients entire blood supply to be replaced - several times in some cases. Do those people lose their souls to be replaced with an amalgamation of various different souls? No, apparently not.

I've thought about this before and I can only come to the conclusion that the blood is the medium for the soul, but it makes just as much sense that every organ in the body also takes part in that delivery. I think of the brain like a tape head, like that inside of a cassette player, with the blood being like the tape. Your blood is made up of mostly Iron and has vast magnetic properties. The chemical cursers from emotions good or bad could "stripe" the blood for lack of a better term there by encoding experience into the blood. This could be why blood is such an important substance to religion.
Not a valid argument
No proofs, for me the soul dont exist , nothing was never proven about the existence of soul .

Isn't that a major point in the Metal Gear Solid games?
But even when blood is replaced, how much of that blood is absorbed into the organs and tissues?
Do not patients have to re aclimate after a transfusion, feeling "light headed" and disoriented.
It's not like a clean swap ounce for ounce all at once and regardless it would be the blood in the brain, "the tape head", that would be most important.
Can't just switch any blood either, but only blood of the same type except in rare cases

But she kept having these cravings anyway she got curious about who the person was that died and donated their lungs and after going through all kinds of legal hoops, She found out that it was a teenage boy who was killed while riding his bike home after he went to McDonalds for you guessed it Chicken Nuggets the poor kid didn't get a chance to even eat them.
Our souls might already be pre-programmed into the core atom and how the atoms combine and form result in various experiences. The potential is contained in each atom...(so called) reality is then the expression of said potentials. My meaning is that all possible souls are already contained in the shared base of "the atom".
